Message to students: current AUT Action

17 March 2006

At UCL's Academic Committee on Tuesday 14 March, it was agreed that a short statement should be posted on the UCL website in order to inform and reassure students about the current AUT strike action.


As UCL students may be aware, members of the Association of University Teachers (AUT), concerned with the national cost-of-living pay negotiations, are taking national industrial action.

The action at UCL has comprised a strike action on 7 March 2006 by some UCL staff, followed by a programme of actions short of a strike, notably examination and assessment boycotts.

UCL would like to reassure students that the university will make every effort to minimise the impact of any industrial action on their studies. Where disruption looks likely to occur, students will be kept fully informed by their departments, who have been asked to communicate with students both by email and via their pigeon holes.
